Access Report with random numbers

Access Report with random numbers

Access Report with random numbers

I am creating an Access report from one table.  One of the fields is a numeric value.    It is the file number that ranges from 1 to 4300.  I want to show a random sample of 56 of these in the report. Please help me.

RE: Access Report with random numbers

I would use the RND function to get records and add them to a table.
Then base your report on that table

--------------- Here is a simple one example that generates numbers ---------------
Public Sub RandomNums()
    Dim db As Database, rst, rst2 As Recordset, SQL As String
    Set db = CurrentDb
    ' SQL string.
    Set rst2 = db.OpenRecordset("RndNumbers")
    For a = 1 To 25
        SQL = "SELECT * FROM number1 WHERE numbers = " & Int((50 * Rnd) + 1) & ";"
        Set rst = db.OpenRecordset(SQL)
        rst2!RndNumber = rst!Numbers
End Sub
